    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Hey folks,

    Sorry I haven't updated this in awhile. Just got the EM from Till E. I have found some other things within a 6-8 mile radius of this shaft. That and what appears to be a Death Trap Hanging over the cut that I never noticed before. I'll resize the close-up and post it for comments. I have seen what some other posters have called "Death Traps" that were nothing but interesting NATURAL rock formations. I rappelled down to this thing from above and see hand formed stones and the trap boulder has a nice X or Cross cut into the side. It hangs over the cut in the hillside. If you look at the distance shot of the cut, it is above and to the right.

    Thanks again-Mike

    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    This is what I think is a Death Trap. It hangs above and to the right of the cut in the hillside. Some of the rocks in the formation fit together too well. I can't find the trip for it. Not going into the main shaft until I either feel sure this is NOT a death trap, or until I can figure how to trip it and redirect the trap boulder.

    The second pic is a close-up of the X in the side of the trap boulder and the balance rocks. See how well they fit together!

    Here is a close-up of the rear top rock that looks cut to fit something.

    Think these are nice. Wait until I feel comfortable posting the rest of the monument pics I have of this area. Some of them are unbelieveable! When you see these things near the top of a 4000 foot mountain peak that looks near impossible to bring horses up, makes you wonder how they could balance a 2-3 ton boulder atop a small base rock (OK,OK, I'll post this one too).

    This one is near the top of a 3200 foot peak. The pointer rock guides you over the top of the ridgeline to another monument on the other side that is equally amazing!

    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    Gollum,
    I have been making frequent trips into Borrego and would be happy to stand guard for you while you explore the tunnel. I don't need any treasure, but I'm sure you would like to have someone around to call for help if needed or contact next of kin. I can bring some 2-ways and perhaps other equipment.

    My engineering background might be useful in disarming any deathtraps.

    Just interested...

    Thanks Bob. Not just yet. I have friends saying the same thing all the time. As far as the Death Trap, I'm not 100% sure it is yet, but am very wary because of where it hovers over.

    If it is a Death Trap, they are never THAT hard to figure out. Just difficult to get above it, rapell down, and spend some quality time finding the trip rock. Worst case scenario, just kick out some of the balance rocks while belayed from above. Watch the whole thing come down and see what pops up next! I would like to get behind the big rectangular support boulder. Maybe it covers up a Pozo (Mine Vent Shaft), or a smaller shaft. I'll be out there tomorrow, and post tomorrow night. Maybe even put up some more pics!

    Re: Old Shaft Unearthed in Anza-Borrego Desert!!

    OK, here's the latest update; The Death Trap may be part of a larger one that was tripped previously, and this section failed to fall. The big boulder that blocks the cut, and another one that fell on top of it look like they came from the same section of cliff as the remaining rocks in my pics. Basically, this means that I'm still not sure about the Death Trap part.

    The shaft will require a lot more digging out before I'll be able to enter the main shaft.

    I have an electric RC Rock Crawler with mounted camera. I'll send it in to see if it looks worth the effort. I actually have two, but one is too big for the final five or so feet before the main shaft.

    Thanks for the offer Capt. Bill, but no official pics until I've thoroughly been through it and seen all it has to offer. I've been crawling in hidden holes ever since I was a little kid. I am anti-claustrophobic. If something looks promising, I have a local pro TH'er who will come along and keep an eye out for me. He stays busy right now on a dig in AZ, so I don't bother him until it's absolutely necessary.

    A) gosh, not even in my wildest dreams did I consider this, snifff, thanks.

    All that I ask in addition, is to let me know when you intend to go back so that I can establish an irontight alibi just in
    case Sossi decides to accelerate his endowment.
